SHIPPING PRACTICE

March, and with the cessation of harvest in the north, the
south commences to become the provider of the world's
needs.

This seasonal change and time of shipment of cargoes
from certain places was more clearly defined some years
ago than at present. Now, with the advent of cold stores,
canning stations, refrigerator ships, and many other inven-
tions and improvements, the markets of the world have
become generalized, shipments being made at all times of
the year.
